A bend is any knot used to join two lengths of rope.
List of bends
|Blood knot||A low-profile bend most usefully employed for joining sections of monofilament nylon line while maintaining a high portion of the line's inherent strength.|
|Carrick bend||A bend that is particularly appropriate for very heavy rope or cable that is too large and stiff to be easily formed into other common bends.|
|Fisherman's knot||A bend that is easy to tie with wet or numb hands and is moderately resistant to slippage on monofilament lines.|
|Sheet bend||A bend that is good for joining lines of different thickness or rigidity.|
|Double sheet bend||Suitable for when the difference in line thickness or rigidity requires additional security to the Sheet bend.|
